Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a great facility overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections are nearly flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home fared well in our long-term care category. As a result, we gave it a grade of A for that area, which is one of our most dominant scores. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 94.58239 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This nursing home is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B. It outperformed most facilities in this area. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
The next category we looked at was nursing, in which this facility received a grade of B-. Even though this is its weakest category grade, this is still not a bad grade. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
